It's an eco-car with a 25 km-per-litre mileage on petrol, meets every international standard and specification, including Euro-4 norms. Acceleration wise, it's the same as a Maruti 800.
FYI; 25 km per litre converts to 58.8 miles per gallon. In the past, Tata has said its $2,500 car, which is due for release next June and will be on display next month, will be the cleanest in the world. Tata also has plans to make a compressed air and fuel cell car but most greens are not happy because dropping the price for a car so dramatically will mean an increase in the number of cars and, likely, more pollution.
Nissan may import the car to the United States or Europe, so the question is, might you buy the 59 miles per gallon $2,500 car in 2008?
